First Watch: CALLmeKAT, 'Hidden Waters'

A major component of Katrine Ottosen's appeal in her electropop project CALLmeKAT is her ability to capture dueling moods in a single song. "Hidden Waters," the title track of her first new release since 2012's Where the River Turns Black, finds her voice and the lyrics airy and bordering on melancholy, while her keyboard tells a different story. Her instrumentation is '70s bounce and swing with a modern electronic edge. The result is breezy and danceable, proving that pensive love songs are elevated by psychedelic keyboard solos.

TheHidden WatersEP is out now.
